Gourmet deli trial, Silo's and Street art!

Come along for 3 beautiful days, full with amazing art and history!

Day One.

Departing home this morning we make our way to Nagambie where we board the Goulburn Explorer for our cruise and morning tea. We will take a visit to Mitchelton winery and the Ministry of Chocolate – one of Australia’s most beautiful and historic wineries. We will be enjoying lunch today at the Nagambie Rowing Club on the shores of Lake Nagambie, before re-joining our coach to Wangaratta. This will be home for the next two nights.

Day Two.

After breakfast, we board the coach and head to Benalla. On arrival we are joined on the coach by a local expert for a tour of the city’s famous street art – artists from around the world were bought together to paint murals on bare walls, some are over three stories high!

Just up the road is Glenrowan, scene of the Kelly Gang’s last stand. We’ll visit Kate’s Cottage (named after Ned’s sister) and witness the events that led to the capture of the Kelly Gang at Kelly Land at the Glenrowan Tourist Centre. With lunch at the local hotel. After lunch we make our way to the most talked about in art in the region, the painted silo’s. This afternoon we’re off to do a little silo spotting of our own. Not far from Benalla is our first silo – the Goorambat silo – a barking owl, which is critically endangered. In Devenish, see Cam Scale’s artwork representing the changing role of the women in the military – a First World War nurse and a modern-day combat medic. Finally, Tungamah to see a celebration of the brolgas and a kookaburra. The Tungamah silo is a privately-owned silo of the Cooper family and the artist from Broome Sobrane. Each silo has a different artist and a different story!

                                 

Day Three.

This morning we head to the Winton Wetlands. The hundreds of Indigenous scar trees and tool scatters throughout the site indicate its importance to Indigenous people who called it ‘Mokoan’. Recorded history tells us that at times, many hundreds of Aboriginal people met at this site. The mid-19th century saw the enforced removal of its Indigenous owners, establishment of the huge ‘Mokoan Squatters Run’ and then its division into smaller farms. The site is home to several birds of prey which are attracted by the many small birds, reptiles and mammals that inhabit the area. These include the White-bellied Sea eagles, wedge tailed eagle, spotted harriers and peregrine falcons. Kits, waterfowl and kestrels are also common, as are well-known birds like ducks and cormorants. The site is also home to many snakes and other reptiles including goannas, bearded dragons, bluetongue lizards and smaller skinks.

During our tour around this amazing area we will stop at the Mokoan Hub and Café for a cooked lunch. The café using local ingredients and is sure to impress! The landscape art in the Winton Wetlands helps visitors understand the site and connect with the stories. Artist interpretations of the site enhance the experience, whether the add colour and a sense of whimsy like the fish painting on Boggy Bridge Road by a local artist Tim Bowtell or deal with more serious subject matter like the three magnificent portraits of local Country Fire Authority (CFA volunteers) on the tank on the corner of Winton North and Boggy Bridge Road) artists, Guido Van Helten. Water gallery at Ashmeads Swamp. Other pieces include the Hilda Bain portrait and the Gallery Kailea Turtle sculpture at the Lunette. The Winton Wetlands Reserve is 8,750Ha that comprises 3,800Ha of wetlands surrounded by predominantly river red gum and grassy box woodlands and grazing lands.  Mid-afternoon we will board the coach for our trip home.

Our journey continues along the Coastal Park for about 32km taking us past towns between Peterborough and Warrnambool. Along this stretch you will see lookout areas with parking provided at the Bays at Martyrs, the Bay of Islands, Three Mile beach and Childers Cove. Your coach will endeavour to stop at one parking areas available as we pass through Port Fairy. Warrnambool and down to Cape Otway, is known as the Shipwreck Coast. Many water vessels ran aground in the 1800’s and early 1900’s, due to ferocious weather conditions and the rocky coastline. We’ll book into our motel to freshen up and relax before dinner.

 

Day Two: Warrnambool Sightseeing (B,D)

After breakfast we commence our morning boarding the coach heading to Warrnambool. Here we will so some artistic sight-seeing, starting with ‘Our story mural’ by artist Claire Foxton. Claire Foxton created the ‘Our story’ mural in October 2018. Sitting proudly on the West Warrnambool Water Tower, this stunning piece profiles the journey of the three local immigrants and former refugees. Through exploring the challenges and successes of various migrants’ groups in this region. The story celebrates the rich and diverse social tapestry of the Great South Coast. We will wander down past the wonderful wall art in Liebug Street. Here you will also find a nice little café or some morning teas. Lunch today will be t the RSL (own cost). After lunch it is time to take a cruise along the Hopkins River with tea and coffee included. After our cruise, we will make our way to Lake Pertobe Maze. A mural bonsai. The Lake Pertobe maze is looking better than ever thanks to four renowned street artists and a cohort of community. The workshops culminated in the repainting of the iconic maze with the assistance of local artists Nathan Pye, Jim Maglaras, Jessica Meggs, plus 150 kids were also invited to grab a spray can to add some colour.

 

Day Three: Portland (B,D)

After breakfast, today we will make our way to Portland. Firstly, we will take a town tour aboard the Portland cable tram. Spectacular scenery, historic attractions, knowledgeable volunteers, an enjoyable ride for about 7.3km meandering along Portland’s spectacular foreshore. Then onto some historical sites, such as the Bluestone Municipal complex and old inns, which date back to 1842. The lighthouse, Mary Mckillop drive. Now you will have some free time in Portland to visit the local area and to buy some lunch. After lunch we will visit Bridgewater Bay, with views of the rugged coastline. A short walk will take you to the blowholes and Petrified Forest, once thought to be the remains of a Moonah Forest smothered by a large sand dune, creating unusual sandstone formations.

 

Day Four: Port Fairy – via Warrnambool – Home (B)

After breakfast, our time in Port Fairy. Firstly, some time to enjoy the local boutique shops before boarding the coach for a town tour including the lighthouse and the Port Fairy Historic Museum – Submerged Shipwreck Exhibition. Port fairy Lifeboat Shed (Maritime Artefacts) In early 1800 a boat called ‘The Fairy’ chose this tiny bay on the mouth of the Moyne River to shelter from a storm. Steeped in charm, there is also a historic Celtic influence in the architecture of this town the restaurants and a flourishing arts scene: open studios and galleries scatter the streets and are linked into a delightful art walk. Although seen by many as an overnight stop, Port Fairy is a perfect place from which to explore the famous and somewhat notorious shipwreck coast and surrounding towns. Enjoy sometime on the pier where you can enjoy some refreshments overlooking the harbour, enjoy lunch of fish and chips sitting on the deck or a short walk to the local cafes. Back on board the coach we make our way home via Warrnambool. We will take a slight detour toward the WOMBAT BRIDGE MURAL.

 This work was created in May 2018 as a practice for another piece commissioned by the Warrnambool City Council for ‘Little Liebig Street’. Artist Jimmi Buscombe drew the wombat seemingly burrowing through the Otway Road Rails overpass with chalk, and only intended for it to be temporary. Phil Hoy, a former Warrnambool City Council graffiti removal contractor, liked the artwork so much that he applied an automotive clear coat to it, essentially making it permanent. Jimmi, unaware of Phil’s actions, returned after two days to wash off the mural and much to his surprise, was unable to. Eventually he found out what had happened, and shared a laugh with Phil. While Jimmi did not have permission to create the artwork and explain the situation to Council, they were ore than happy to let the piece remain. This story was first covered by ABC South West Victoria, and the video they produced was watched more than 5 million times within a week of being published.

Back on board we continue our journey home with a stop at Allansford Cheese World (time permitting) for a tour and cheese tasting, there is also a Café here, if you wish to have some refreshments, at own expense. We’ll then board our coach to continue home with some refreshments/restroom breaks along the way.
